Get ready to meet your new favourite dress! Aggie is the big sister to Agatha, the gorgeous little dress we made for christmas 2015, which had the same cut-out keyhole back and shaped, fitted bodice, but was a sleeveless shape with lots of party potential. We wanted Aggie to be the grown up version of our favourite party dress, with a cute capped sleeve to give just that little bit more coverage and the same perfectly gathered knee length skirt which means she will lend herself to events as well as work and weekend fun! and of course, she has pockets!
FEATURES: The Aggie is a lovely flattering shape with a shaped bodice, high waist and gathered skirt. Of course she features the all important POCKET detail in the side seams. She is the perfect fit and flare shape with a knee length skirt and plenty of detailing at the neckline with a sewn down band to frame your face and neckline. She is the easiest dress to wear on days where you want to feel cute but dressy, but isn’t too over the top that you can’t own a couple of prints without people realising it’s the same shape dress (we are huge fans of doing this with the pieces we love). The flattering cap sleeve will practical for summer heat, and also creates just the right angle on your arm to flatter and give some coverage. The fit is easy and fun, perfect for casual weddings, garden parties, dinner or drinks with mates.
HOW TO WEAR: Wear Aggie with a little short sleeve cardigan or bolero to dress down in summer. She works well with sandals and clogs, or even a pair of cute sneakers. In winter she can be layered with our 3/4 basic long sleeve tops as well as our wool cardigans. The tiny sleeve and neckline detail means she works well with long necklaces, and can be accessorised with a cute coloured belt. Aggie works well going from day to night and can be dressed up or down depending on your mood.
FABRIC: Cotton Sateen, cotton 97% with 3% stretch, medium weight, slight sheen.

ABOUT THE ARTIST: Hayley Wills is a self taught visual artist who lives in Brisbane and is passionate about developing vibrant colour palettes. We love Hayley's beautiful florals and this fabric is inspired by her Banksia and bottlebrush artworks. Hayley deconstructed her artwork painting each element in a beautiful range of colours that coordinate perfectly with our knitwear. We then layered each individual floral element in the style of the original to create the fabric yardage.
